Libri Gedanenses

Libri Gedanenses is a scientific publication of the Gdansk PAN Library – a journal constituting a forum for the presentation of the collections and activity of our library. Issued since 1968, the periodical, founded as the first bibliological journal in the Tri-City, was fathered and created by dr Marian Pelczar, a long-standing head of the Library.

The scientific activity of the Gdansk Library is directed at the gradual exploration of the Gdansk world of the book, with a view to the development of an opus magnum of the book culture. Libri Gedanenses presents the achievements both of the employees of the Library and authors from other scientific centres, in line with the adopted profile of the periodical adopted by its Programme Board.

Between 1976 and 1991, Libri Gedanenses was combined with Rocznik Gdańsk [the Gdansk Annual]. What has always remained unchanged is the inspiration for the illustration of its cover – a reproduction of a 17th century print presenting the interior of the Library of the Gdansk City Council which was established in 1596, and which is a predecessor of the Gdansk PAN Library.
